SYMANTEC ANNOUNCES ANTIVIRUS FOR MACINTOSH TROJAN HORSE

 SYMANTEC ANNOUNCES ANTIVIRUS FOR MACINTOSH TROJAN HORSE
 CUPERTINO, Calif., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ: SYMC) today announced that Symantec AntiVirus for Macintosh (SAM) version 3.0 recognizes and protects against the Macintosh Trojan Horse called ChinaTalk. ChinaTalk affects all Apple Macintosh computer systems and claims to be a sound driver that is MacInTalk compatible. SAM 3.0 running in standard protection mode already detects this Trojan Horse by monitoring for suspicious activity -- a feature unique to SAM.
 SAM version 3.0 customers can immediately update the detection and protection capabilities of the program against this new Trojan Horse by entering the new virus definition into SAM Virus Clinic. In conjunction with the new SAM User Definition and SAM 3.0, users can scan for ChinaTalk from both Virus Clinic and SAM Intercept.
 To detect and repair infected files, users can download the new virus definitions file free of charge from the Symantec Bulletin Board at 408-973-9598, CompuServe, America Online and Applelink. Users can also obtain detection and repair capabilities by ordering a virus update disk for $12 (includes shipping and handling, sales tax added where applicable) through Customer Service at 800-441-7234 in the United States and 408-252-3570 in Canada.
 Symantec is the worldwide leader in providing competitive antivirus protection for Macintosh, IBM and IBM-compatible computers. Symantec markets Symantec AntiVirus for Macintosh, a complete antivirus software package which detects and combats all known Macintosh viruses. SAM version 3.0 is available through Symantec's network of distributors and resellers for the suggested retail price of $99.
 Symantec Corp. develops, markets and supports a complete line of application and system software products for IBM personal computers and compatibles and Apple Macintosh computers. Founded in 1982, the company has offices in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.
